2 large skinless chicken breasts
80g seeded or white bread (2 slices)
4 tbsp (60ml) Oak Smoked Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil (plus a little more for drizzling)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 bunch fresh asparagus
A good pinch salt and pepper
12 cherry tomatoes on the vine


1. Pre heat your oven to 200C / 180C (fan) / gas mark 6.

2. Tear up your bread and place in a food processer, then blitz until rough breadcrumbs have started to form. Add the Oak Smoked Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil, garlic and seasoning and blend further until all the ingredients are combined.

3. Place the chicken breasts in an oven proof dish and, using your hands, press the breadcrumb mixture onto each piece until they are all covered. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

4. Remove the chicken from the oven and lay the asparagus and tomatoes in the dish alongside it. Drizzle a touch more of the Oak Smoked Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil over the vegetables and return to the oven for a further 7-10 minutes until the asparagus is cooked (be sure not to let it over cook).

4. We like to serve this with new potatoes tossed in a mint and balsamic dressing.
